"The Centro Colombo Americano has long been an important landmark in Bogotá, serving generations of its residents through its language courses, film series, cultural events, library, etc. Young and old alike remember the Colombo as the obvious location for English language classes and other enriching cultural experiences.

With two locations in Bogotá and eight affiliate institutions throughout Colombia, the Colombo is a cultural foundation and research institute affirming intercultural exchange and understanding. We hope to help every visitor engage in experiences which invite them to reflect on their own culture and to explore the world without.

The Centro Colombo Americano's Language Center provides quality English-language services and courses. The Center currently runs English programs for children, adults, university students and businesses. With over 12,000 students enrolled, the Colombo is by far the largest language institute in the city, with the longest tradition of quality." (Taken from About Us en 2005. Apparently taken down.)
